Little Winter Cabin

     The challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin' this month is 'decoration', this could be a card featuring a decoration or an actual decoration like this one.
      I have a set of three dies that cut out houses, this is the smallest one, when finished it is only 2.5 inches tall, luckily still big enough to take a battery tea light though.
     I cut the house from some patterned card, folded all the score lines and stuck it together, the bottom has a tab so the house can be used as a mini gift box, so I didn't glue that bit.
     I wanted the door to stand out so I cut a small kraft one and glued it over the pattern. The extra roof was cut from a piece of red corrugated card, cut to hang over the edges just a little like a real roof does.
     To create a mini scene I used one of the trees from a previous post and die cut some deer in kraft card. I left a large tab at the base of the deer as a stand and folded it just where their legs begin.
     Something like this would look good on a small tray or wooden slice as a table decoration, or even in a small jar with some faux snow.
     Making Christmas cards is fun but so is making all those little decorations to dot around the house or give as mini gifts.
     This die could be used any time of year, just use different card to make beach huts or log cabins.
